Painting Over Varnish

I am painting some chairs which are either varnished or stained. The coating is really light and goes back to the wood in most places easily, but some areas are harder to sand back. Do I have to take the entire varnish off or can it just be heavily sanded so it is rough?

Paint does not adhere well over varnish, so it is best you do stain it for a good even coat.

I would get rid of all the varnish for the paint to cover evenly.
